    At random times, I get a pop-up from Firefox 4.0 that is bannered, "Firefox Update", the sub-banner is "Update Failed", and the data is, "Something is trying to trick Firefox into accepting an insecure update. Please contact your network provider and seek help."

    DB:3.04:Update Failed - Something Is Trying To Trick Firefox ax



    "I don't know where/how to find and change the preference value (from aus2 to aus3). "

    There is more than one way to change that. The best solution your problem is to carefully do a fresh install. Do NOT take the option to delete settings, because that destroys your bookmarks etc.

    download and save the new version as an installer from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
    uninstall firefox, and remove the program folder/directory that it is in
    ( NOT the profile folder - which in XP is under Application data
    and ignore any offers to delete settings )
    This action should be removing the file that causes the problem

    Install Firefox by running the installer that you have already saved

    see also http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_%28Firefox%29#Clean_reinstall

    Caution, it does include a warning because changing values of preferences may cause all sorts of problems, it is probably considered an advanced action, best done only on advice you trust, however it is safe to view the preferences without changing them. After the reinstall you should notice both the laptop and the desktop now have the preference with aus3 instead of aus2 . The messages about Firefox being tricked should then stop; and update checks should work, allowing you to update Firefox when appropriate.

    If you want to check of change preferences they may be accessed by typing about:config including the colon (two dots) into the location bar where you normally type web addresses. Hit return/enter key, ignore any warning. Use the filter bar option to narrow down the search, click on preferences for options to change or reset a highlighted preference..

    How can I make the shuffling even more random within my iPod and iTunes?

    DB:3.00:Making Shuffle Very Random k9

    Since this topic is drifting toward smart playlists, I have a folder called SKIPPED where I want to put songs I've skipped so I can scan the list for things I want to remove manually, but it doesn't seem to be working. I know I skipped a song yesterday while ipodding, but there is nothing new on the list after synching.

    I tested it a couple days ago with the iPod attached to my computer (iTunes open) and it worked fine. One thing I've considered is that maybe a song isn't considered skipped if it plays for a certain length of time before skipping or some such thing. I'm usually pretty slow to hit the button as I'm usually working on a hands-on project when ipodding.

    Anyone know if there are certain conditions required to meet the "skipped" criteria? My other smart playlists (recently played, not played in xx days) are working fine.

    DB:2.94:Firefox 18.0.1 Often Freezes, At Random Times, Since About 31 Jan 2013 aj



    2 Feb 2013
    Concerns: Firefox 18.0.1 often freezes, at random times, since about 31 Jan 2013
    I am using Mozilla Firefox 18.0.1, Windows Vista, PC, Desktop.
    My Mozilla Firefox freezes since about 31 Jan 2013 at random times quite often, when I do see TV or videos, also with YouTube videos. It freezes especially when I do start TV or a Video, sometimes also it freezes when the video is running for some time. I do use Firefox mostly only for TV and videos, so else I do not see.
    Some days earlier (26 January 2013), I had installed the upgrade of the new Norton Internet Security 2013. The two Norton add-ons on for Firefox, I have both deactivated.
    I can get out of the freezing, when I do click to end the Internet connection. After I have waited for about 5 seconds, the Mozilla Firefox browser can be moved again with the cursor. After I click to close the Firefox, and wait for about 5 seconds, the freezing also does end.
    I did do two Windows restores, one to 1 week ago and the next to 2 weeks ago. After the restore, when I started Mozilla Firefox, it was at first Firefox 17. But to my very bad luck, Firefox started immediately to update to Firefox 18.0.1 I had seen this updating on Help – About Firefox. There were good times, when people could choose themselves which version of Firefox they wanted.
    After the restore, I had also downloaded the latest Adobe Flashplayer version (about version 11.5), but the freezes have remained the same.
    Is there a possility to prevent the automatic update of Firefox? So that I could choose which version of Firefox, I do want. When there is a serious bug in Firefox, I could nevertheless use Firefox instead of changing to the Internet Explorer. I know I myself am responsible to prevent hackers from entering my computer. I have read that 80% of users in Germany do not have any Internet Security against hackers at all.
    My Internet Explorer until now does not freeze.

    Hi Dave,

    1) Since when are you facing this issue?

    2) Do you recall making any changes?

    3) Does this only happen when you type in web browsers?

    Method 1: Run Internet Explorer in "No Add-ons" mode and then check

    To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer in "No Add-ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:

    a) Click Start, and then type
    Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.
    b) Click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons). Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.

    c) Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly.

    Method 2: Put the computer in clean boot and then check to see if the issue persists

    Follow Step 1 in the link below,
    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Important: - Remember to put the computer back to normal startup follow
    step 7 in the link.

    As the title describes my system freezes at random for periods of time between 30-90 seconds.
    These freezes come during moments of high usage and during idling it is quite odd and frustrating.

    DB:2.76:Windows 8 Appears To Freeze At Random dx

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply.

    You may run Microsoft Safety scanner to make sure the computer is free from virus infection.

    The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove virus, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

    http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Note:
    1) The Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after being downloaded. To rerun a scan with the latest anti-malware definitions, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    2) If you run the virus scan the program that is infected with virus will get deleted. So you have to reinstall the program. Also if the files and folders are affected with virus
    then they might even get deleted.

    Also re-enable the services and check if the issue persists or not.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with updated status of the issue to assist you further.

    Firefox by far is the largest component of this. IN firefox it is the flash player plugin as can be seen in the first trace
    It is both maxing out the HD and increasing memory use dramatically. I would re-install flash /or try a different browser to check it.

    Started late last night, round midnight. I'd just be browsing and all of a sudden the whole computer would freeze up. No big deal. Not like it hasn't happened before. Tried the whole Ctrl+Alt+Del thing, and it comes up with the "Failure to create security options" error message. Done that before too, so I do a manual reboot. Over the next two and a half hours the whole computer continues to freeze up, but it happens at random times no matter what I'm doing. After a while I notice it tends to freeze not long after the Windows Security Center notifications pop up, but I'm tired so I go to bed. This morning the problem persists. I go onto the desktop and start looking for ways to solve this on google. I followedhttp://tinyurl.com/o697ps and it worked, more or less. Under the new account I managed to stay on for an hour and a half without issue, and I rectified the problem with Security Center that was making it pop up. So I turn off the laptop and come back here to the desktop to see how to transfer the files from my old account to this new one, start up the laptop, go into the second account, and bam -- ten minutes of working and all of a sudden same problem. Been browsing through this here forum but I can't seem to find anything that sounds as if it would help, so here I am.

    Safe mode runs perfectly fine. Doesn't freeze up or anything.

    When you think you can make the freeze occur on demand (or at least not wait too long), try clean-boot troubleshooting.

    If you view photos for an extended time, or open a few tabs, Photobucket will cause Firefox to slow down, eventually freeze, then crash. This only started occurring when I updated to Firefox v19.0. This freezing and blanking out of the entire screen image of Firefox will occur when another program, such as Windows mail, is loading at the same time. It also is occurring at random times for no reason. I've never experienced a problem such as this with Firefox or Mozilla, ever. Nothing is preventing this from happening.

    Use these to remove Malware (Virus, Spyware and Adware).

    1) SpyBot Search and Destroy
    After installing SpyBot Search Destroy, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all the items it marks in red.

    2) Get Ad-Aware
    After installing Ad-Aware, and before running the program, first press “check for updates now".
    Click "Connect" and install all updated components available. Click 'Finish'.
    Press "Scan Now", then 'next', and let Ad-Aware scan your drives.
    It will find a number of "bad" files and registry keys. Click 'Next' again.
    Check all found items, and click 'next' once more.
    It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.

    Always reboot the computer between each program - both of these may find things that they need to have a reboot of the machine to clear - please reboot and let them finish .

    Firefox will freeze at random. Not only does the browser freeze, my entire OS seems to be affected as well. My mouse will move, and I can get the start menu to pop up, but that is about it. Ctrl+Alt+Del does not work.

    If i click on the Firefox window, it turns gray, says "not responding", then after about 45 seconds of waiting, it recovers. Occasionally it doesn't recover and I have to do a hard reboot.

    At first i thought this was a flash issue, however it happens at random with no repeating pattern.

After 30 seconds (I hit the power button on the sound) it never recovered and I hard booted the machine. I then downloaded some temperature monitors and checked everything out. CPU was normal, GPU was normal, Hard Drives was normal so wasn't a heat issue. Started back up and nothing.

    Next day the same issue occurred again when I wasbrowsing a webpage while I had another game open on a second monitor. I began investigating the individual parts looking for freezes. Found bits on the CrucialSSD and seen other people with identical issues (http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-State-Drives-SSD/Crucial-M4-128Gb-Win7-random-freeze/td-p/76888) but no resolutions.

I decided to reinstall (why not) and not do all the SSD tweaks (turning off services, working primarily off of a secondary mechanical drive, etc). Right after install while doing windows updates browsing for anything I might have missed bam...another freeze.

A lot of times (and this seems to be the case with Firefox more), when I open more then one tab at a time, lets say 3, it will lag a lot and sometimes freeze for a short while. Today, I opened 3 tabs at once within seconds of each other and not only did Firefox freeze but my computer froze as well and I had to force restart. I'm just wondering why Firefox does this. I am pretty sure it isn't a bad install and I know it cant be any extensions or plugins because I only use one and its Kaspersky (antivirus).

    DB:2.70:Firefox Tends To Lag A Lot When Opening More Then One Tab At Once a7



    It is possible that your security software (firewall, anti-virus) blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.

    Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

    When the system freezes I cannot switch workspaces or execute any xmonad command i.e. recompile, quit X, etc. The freezes only seems to affect xmonad.

    The mouse still works and I can quit programs by right clicking them in trayer, also sometimes firefox accepts keyboard input and I can quit it cleanly.

    The system shuts down normally when I press the power button to escape the freeze.

    The Video card is the one the monitor cable connects to. Likely the one at the top. Disk cleanup/defragmentation is a good idea,look in system tools for it. You may have done it already.
    Those temporary internet files can take over. More RAM is better, up to 640 mb in my experience, but it should work, with 384 well enough. The video card was a trouble spot for my system. Also, it is possible the hard drive is failing, if it sounds louder than usual. At work, I saw one function but very noisy and slowly.

    DB:2.69:[Solved]Not Another Random Freeze - Only While Gaming sp



    Okay, so heres whats happening. If I play any game, (so far only 3D games), after about 5 minutes I lose my mouse control. Keyboard control is still there, but it tends to get lost as well if I dont get out of the game quick enough. This is really annoying, and it happens on ubuntu, fedora, and archlinux, all which have been 64-bit. I dont freeze up at all unless I am gaming, this graphics card is brand new, and it was happening with my 8800gt as well, which I ended up taking out because the fan broke. So yeah brand new Radeon 4650 with FGLRX driver, the mouse is a USB Logitech Laser mouse. The computer isnt freezing completely, just losing mouse, then sometimes keyboard, and (i tried setting up the SysRq thing, this is not working). I hear all these things about people randomly freezing, playing music or video, etc. Well I havent had problems with that, only while gaming on two different graphics cards? Im thinking its Kernel, and probably not fixable on my level. I dont want to have old software to play games, I have windows xp with blackbox for that .

    Alright guys so heres what Ive been doing. Ive played alien arena, which is a pretty horrible game. What I noticed in alien arena is that my mouse would not control the mouse in the game unless it was run in window mode and I clicked on the titlebar to focus it. Very strange. Also, tremulous works for the most part, havent lost my mouse, but it has made my system hang, I think its just the game personally.

    Ive played warsow, amazing game, and no problems at all, played for a while too.

    Also Ive played urban terror, which is running perfectly fine. The problem seemed to just disappear and I thank you all for your help.

    DB:2.69:Problem With Flash On Firefox c8


    Hi,

    I have flash 10 on Firefox, this version happens to be 3.0.4

    Anyway, I've always had a problem with Flash no matter what
    version of Firefox.

    I haven't heard of too many other people having this issue
    and it's not really a big problem but it can be aggravating at
    times.

    Whenever I'm watching a video on Youtube or anywhere else, at
    random times my computer will freeze up for about 10 seconds or so
    and it'll act like something is loading up. Then it goes right back
    to how it was and everything is fine.

    I'm not sure if it's my computer (2.4Ghz P4, 512MB Ram,
    Onboard Nvidia Geforce MX graphics) or if it's flash.

    Heck, it could even be Firefox. Not sure just would like to
    know if anyone has had the same issue or know what the problem
    could be.

    Thanks :-)

    Hello folks,I've been having this unusual problem where after my T60p has been running for a while and I've opened several videos, opening a new one, whether it is online or on my Hard Drive, blanks out the screen and makes the laptop freeze.

    I'd also try reinstalling your laptop to factory settings. You can use seagatediskwizard to clone your hard drive or any other hard drive cloning software and make a clone of your hd incase it doesn't fix the problem, then you can just clone it back. I searched a few keywords and found that there's a problem with itunes and video playback. Maybe try using windows media player if you have been using itunes.Message Edited by nambinhvu on 07-24-2008 06:48 PM

    Hi,
    I have to use a web application with a java applet that tends to freeze with the Java 1.6 provided by my distribution
    I'd love to tell firefox to use JRE 1.5 installed in my home folder for this particular website.
    If this is not possible, I could use a Firefox profile that will only use the 1.5 java, while the default profile would use the system one.
    If this is not possible, I could even use a different user specifically for accessing this app.

    So the task is: keep the system provided java for all tasks (I use things that require 1.6). Find a way to use the plugin in /home/hajma/java15 when accessing the one particular site.
    Is that possible?
    I already asked at the mozilla forums but got no usable answer (http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38t=1104785)

    I'd love to tell firefox to use JRE 1.5 installed in my home folder for this particular website.Unfortunately, I don't think this is possible - Firefox will use the same JRE for all web-sites.

    If you want to tell Firefox to use your JRE 1.5 then create a symbolic link to its Plug-In, i.e. something like:

    cd /home/hajma/.mozilla/plugins
    ln -s /home/hajma/java15/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    (looks like you're using some flavour of *nix).

    Alternatively, I'd also recommend giving the latest "next generation" JRE a try. I was experiencing lots of lock-ups with JRE 6.0 update 7 (the "classic" Java Plug-In) with Firefox 3 on Ubuntu. I installed the latest JRE 6.0 update 12 and these problems have disappeared.

    If you do so you'll need to do something like

    cd /home/hajma/.mozilla/plugins
    ln -s /home/hajma/java60u12/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

    (and delete the link to libjavaplugin_oji.so created above)

So check that. Also check that you are running encrypted many reports of this fixing issues for some individuals. Lastly look at mu torrents faq or change your router firmware to linux.

At first I thought maybe it was just the channel and tried to wait it out or fast forward through the freeze but every time it will just boot me to the last channel I was watching. I waited a week to see maybe if it would just work itself out considering the DVR was just installed, however it still seems to be doing the same thing. Freeze, and then boot to the last channel I was watching. Is this something that I can fix myself ? Or is this a malfunction with the box itself that needs to be replaced?

    Thank you for any time and responses.

    It can either be a RF signal issue to the DVR, or the DVR's hard drive failing.

    You have two choices, swap the DVR at the local Comcast office, or call and insist on getting a tech out. The tech can confirm or correct the RF signal levels and SNR, or replace the DVR depending on the real issue.

    I am streaming live events using FMLE and a Sony VX2100 cam. Input looks great, at times output...not so much.
    It seems that if the cam is panned or zoomed, the encoder tends to drop frames. The result on the viewers end is that the video will freeze up, then start up again at the point after the skipped frames.
    Any ideas why panning and zooming are a problem for the encoder? How to deal with dropped frames like that?
    Thanks,
    Adninjastrator

    DB:2.66:Dropped Frames Problem z1

    Thank you for your reply. I understand completely about the % of pixels changing during pan/zoom. That's why I try avoid unless really neccessary.
    However, this is a Live stream intended for viewing over 1.5-3Mb Internet connections so streaming at a bitrate like 2.5Mb is out of the question.
    But I will take your advice and test at a little higher rate. Once I get up to 1Mb or so, viewers start having download connection problems.
    As an alternative, I have switched the auto-adjust to "degrade quality". This results in almost zero dropped frames and only about 15 to 20% loss in quality during pan/zoom, and no dropped frames or freezing.
    Thanks again for your time!

This corresponds to 4 short flashes, 1 long flash, a pause, then 3 short flashes. I have no idea how to interpret this code so could anyone possibly enighten me, as it would be much appreciated!

    Hi Will

    I don’t know exactly what the problem can be but I have found info that 10h has something to do with AC adaptor output voltage.

    On this way it is not easy to say what the problem can be but the fact is that the system board processor module may be disconnected or damaged. This must be tested correctly and unfortunately you can not do much alone. Contact the service partner in your country and let them check the unit.

    Good luck!

    DB:2.66:Video Freeze On Firefox When Move Timeline Slider Randomly 11


    I am using default video player template that comes with expression encoder sp1 to work with ism (smooth streaming) videos.
    Its works great, except that sometime when I move timeline and random points, video would freeze after few seconds. Sometimes cliking on the slider again start the video again. Sometimes video just resets and start playing from the begining.
    And most of the time this issue is on Firefox. Has anyone else noticed similar problems?

    DB:2.65:Cursor Freeze p9


    I have noticed that in a number of applications (mostly games), some on line some off line, my cursor tends to freeze in the last position to which data was entered on the keyboard for a few seconds.
    Sometimes, if I lift my finger off the trackpad and then touch again the cursor moves immediaitely. Sometimes I just have to wait.

    Is this a known bug? is there something I can do about it?

    DB:2.65:Aspire S7-392 Random Shutdowns mz



    Hello all,

    I've had an aspire S7 for about half a year now and have started to have power issues roughly since the windows 8.1 update. While plugged in it does fine but off the charger it frequently shuts down for no reason while I'm working. It tends to happen three or four times in a row at an increasing rate until I finally try to reboot and am told windows didn't shut down correctly. After that it tends to be a while before the next set of restarts and the cycle starts over again.

    I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this problem and knows of a potential cause or fix.

    Thanks.

    DB:2.65:Aspire S7-392 Random Shutdowns mz


    Hi ParthPtl

    If it is only shutting down on battery power, then there may be an issue with the battery. Take it in for repair, or if under warranty, contact support.

    DB:2.64:[Solved] Random Freezes, Keyboard Lockups f8



    There doesnt appear to be anything to explain this in the logs, but Arch tends to randomly freeze, sometimes a kernel panic sometimes not, either way it forces a restart.

    There are also times where the keyboard becomes inoperable and using halt wont work, a hard reset is required.

    So yeah, I have no idea where to start. I posted this in another forum but perhaps I will get better responses here.

    I am running Arch64 on an xps m1330 with an nvidia 8400m, running gnome with compiz-fusion-git.

    DB:2.64:Any Idea Whats Wrong With My Mac? px


    The other day I was on the internet via firefox and every time i went to random internet pages, firefox would freeze and not unfreeze, making me have to force quit it. After several more attempts at going back on firefox the same thing would happen every time i went to specific random sites (random because there was no reason for those sites to make firefox crash). Assuming firefox was just being buggy I went on safari, however the same thing would happen when I went to random website (some sites that crashed firefox wouldn't crash safari and vice versa). So after a day or two of irritating web browser crashes I got the mcafee anitvirus program and scanned my mac. The scan ended with it finding one virus file and removing it. However my internet browsers continued crashing the same as before. I then tried uninstalling firefox and downloading it again, hoping that it would work better. It runs just as bad as before and now it takes a minute or two to open.

    So basically I have no idea what's going wrong with my mac and I was wondering if you have any ideas as to what the problem is/how to fix it.

    DB:2.64:Macbook Pro (Late 08) Freeze xa


    Been doing research on this issue but can't find a right reason. This all started two weeks ago where airport failed to pick up any wifi spot, and if it did, entire computer would freeze up, forcing me to hard reboot it. At first I thought it was a hard drive failure but the hard drive did not make a clicking sound, and the problem seemed to go away after the reboot. The freeze tends to happen when I tilt the computer. Brought it in to Apple store and the genius suggested to do a clear install of Mac OS but he couldn't pinpoint the problem. Any chance this could be the sign of logic board failure? Any input will be appreciated!

    DB:2.64:Macbook Pro (Late 08) Freeze xa

    So it's been two days since I had the new hard drive put in, I'm still experincing freezing as described before. It just happens less often, down from 5-6 times a day to 1-2. With the new hard drive, I transferred my old data via Time Capsule but left out the application folder like the Apple genius suggested. I also cleaned up the internals with DataVac. Is there anything else I could/should try out?The freezing occurs particularly when I tilt/pick up the laptop off the desk. After the reboot, it shows no Airport card installed, forcing me to reboot it again in order to get it detected. If I don't pick up the laptop all day, it'd work as usual, no freezes whatsoever.If this is really a logic board issue, I'm getting a new rMBP. Don't get me wrong I love this laptop, but it's just not worth throwing in 2k for repair. It's weird that this happened to my previous Laptop (iBook G4) at almost exact same time... as if they're set to malfunction after 4 years :S

    Your computer is likely setup for multiple keyboard layouts and ahotkeyhas been inadvertently pressed to switch between layouts. The

    Open the Control Panel and go to theRegion and Languageapplet. From theKeyboards and Languagestab clickChange keyboards. If you only want theUSkeyboard layout, select thenDeleteall
    others listed in theGeneraltab
    If you have the need for multiple keyboard layouts, ensure thatUSis set at the top of the list and move to theAdvanced Key Settingstab. Modify or delete thehotkeysfor switching between keyboard layouts by selecting
    an option and clickingChange Key Sequence.
    If you have decided to retain multiple keyboard layouts, make sure that theLanguage Baris readily available from theLanguage Bartab.Docked in Taskbaris a good setting here. If this is set,the keyboard icon will
    be present to the left of the Notification Area (e.g. System Tray) when theLanguage BarisDocked in taskbar.This allows you to quickly switch between keyboard layouts.

    First off, don't use Advanced System care or registry cleaners, they will actually break your computer's registry.

    Second, Make sure you have Windows up to date, and update your graphics driver. Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL

    Do you still have a crash? If you do, please submit the report and give the new crash id

    DB:2.64:Why Does Ie9 Have Trouble Displaying Webpages Such As Wnd.Com Or Tumblr.Com 1f


    It tends to freeze up for a time, and says Webpage is not responding: Chrome has no trouble at all displaying these pages. IE even froze upwhile I wastrying to sign in to ask this question.

    DB:2.64:Why Does Ie9 Have Trouble Displaying Webpages Such As Wnd.Com Or Tumblr.Com 1f

    No, this is a brand new installation.

    Method 1 does not apply to me, I can access these websites, it is just that IE is very slow at loading them. Once the pages do load, they are so difficult to scroll through, I end up having to give up on it. Scrolling is all herky-jerky, and sometimes I'll
    just get a wait timer (even though the page has loaded completely).Some times IE will simply freeze up, andI will have to restart it.This isn't the kind of behavior I would expect from a browser.

    I tried Method 2, I'll see what happens next.
